Support for 4K screens
With new scalable vector symbols, TurboCAD is now fully optimized for 4K monitors. Dynamic sliders can be used to adjust toolbar icons, the user interface and other icons in other areas of the user interface to optimize readability on higher resolution monitors.
Improved function for named views
Layergroups can now be linked to named views, which greatly simplifies their management.
Design and editing in 2D
Selection by similar options
A powerful tool that allows you to select any 2D or 3D object type or block to find all occurrences in the drawing. Very detailed options can be selected, including parameters such as pen color and style, fill color and style, layers and even the coordinate system of the selected object. A great tool that can be used to make further global changes to the selected object.
This tool transfers the properties of a reference object and applies them to the next drawn object. This tool provides a fast and efficient way to assign object properties such as line fonts, dimension styles and wall properties with a single click.
Insert PDF underlay
This function allows you to insert pages from PDF files into drawings to use them as references or as layers for tracing. To use a PDF page as a tracing layer, it must be a vector PDF file. The use of a bitmap PDF is not suitable for this purpose. If the PDF file contains vector data, you can use the end and center points of lines in the PDF as snap points. The underlay appears as bitmap data of the PDF. Underlays consist of two parts: Underlay style and underlay insertion. The PDF Underlay as Objects tool allows you to convert the underlay into editable objects.
This command highlights the end points of items. It is available on the shortcut menu when the selected graphic is not closed and the number of vertices is greater than 2. Supported object types: Polylines, 3D polylines, double lines, walls, Bezier and spline curves.
This "overkill" tool allows the user to remove overlapping lines, arcs, text, and dimensions, simplifying drawings by removing duplicate, redundant objects. The Event Viewer shows the number of objects that have been changed.
Selection Point Hatching
Selection point hatching also works for 2D objects with gaps. Example: Filling an area bounded by a polyline when the polyline has gaps. These enhancements also apply to ADT objects (walls, doors, and windows), so such objects with gaps can be filled in a similar way.
3D design and modelling
Users can now select flat 3D polylines or 3D curves for surface extrusion tools such as rotation. 3D curve and curve (2D curve) are now separate tools.
ADT objects (ADT, Architectural Desktop):
ADT objects can now be fully used with the Copy and Linear Matrix copy tools. For example, the Paste Matrix function now takes into account all properties of the ADT object to be copied, including working layer, layers, materials, etc. Previously, this tool could only create a roof object. Now it is possible to create multiple objects. In addition, the overall processing of all ADT objects in a drawing, including the House Assistant, has been greatly accelerated.
Photorealistic rendering and visualization
New LightWorks® rendering module and shader for sun and sky
The LightWorks® rendering module has been updated to version 9.3 Added new Sun Direction by Geoposition and Direction by Geoposition properties to the Sun and Sky shaders.
RedSDK to LightWorks port
Images rendered with RedSDK are now automatically converted to a LightWorks rendered image with greater accuracy and completeness.
Compatibility with AutoCAD 2019
TurboCAD now offers full support for AutoCAD DWG, DXF and DWF formats.
STL filter, 3D print inspection
When exporting an STL file, a new option for 3D print inspection is available. This tool checks a part for the following common topological errors, such as non-multiple edges, double and collapsed facets, open edges, framing, and more. The compression check also displays geometry information such as expansions, number of facets / vertices, area and volume.
Export file format for 3D animation software like 3DS, Maya, MotionBuilder and Mudbox
